Our young friend Rick was in his third year at the university. It was 1 AM on a Saturday night when his phone rang.
“Hey Rick! It’s Michelle! My roommate went home for the weekend and I’m feeling kinda lonely and scared being here alone. Just wondering if you’d like to come over and keep me company.”
“Wow! Uh… thank you, Michelle. Uh. You know, I really like you and I think you’re attractive and a really neat gal. But I need to tell that I made a decision to be a Christian and follow Jesus. Coming over at this hour of the night would put me in a compromising position. I hope you’ll understand.”
“Oh! I feel so stupid! I’m sorry I called. Just forget that I called, okay? Goodnight.”
What do you think about this true story? Did Rick do the right thing? How do you think he felt the next day when he saw Michelle in class?
